Not Even Ash Wednesday

Here’s a video of a volcanic eruption in Iceland on March 1, 2009.

It’s not even Ash Wednesday, but this volcano in Iceland is blowing it’s top.

Thousands of flights are grounded all over Northern Europe waiting for the ash to dissipate or head in another direction.

A geophysicist in Iceland warned the chaos caused by ash drifting from the volcano under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier about 75 miles east of Reykjavik could cause trouble for days or weeks. “It is likely that the production of ash will continue at a comparable level for some days or weeks. But where it disrupts travel, that depends on the weather,” said Einar Kjartansson, a geophysicist at the Icelandic Meteorological Office. “It depends how the wind carries the ash.”

What will be next?  Will The Goracle or Danny Glover call a press conference and blame it on global warming?  Will the government try to carbon tax the volcano for being naughty and spewing out CO2? Will Pachauri come out with a new report stating that the glaciers in Iceland will melt by 2035? Will the EPA come out with new rules regulating volcanoes?

I bet all that ash floating around may cause some global cooling, and cause some “warmer alarmists” heads to spin.

Perhaps we should consider getting The Goracle to sacrifice a virgin to appease the Volcano God.

  1. Bad, bad, Icelandic volcano! I hope the Green Police plan to stage a protest around it…the sooner the better!
